It’s a place to meet the farmers, butchers, bakers, winemakers and all those who bring their bounty to this 9-acre table day in and day out. Taste the authentic flavors of India with saffron spice, a classic street-food staple. Enjoy fresh biscuits — made with local ingredients and sustainable farming practices — plus real Italian gelato. Stop at Ellenos Real Greek Yogurt (made from locally sourced ingredients), Las Agaves for authentic Mexican street tacos and the Pure Fish Food Market for the best smoked salmon in the world. There’s also Pike Place chowder, voted the best in the country three times, plus ‘to-die-for’ truffles, hand-crafted Bavarian meats and Seattle super chef Tom Douglas’s signature salmon burger.

The Taste of Pike Market Tour was outstanding. We didn't know some of these places existed at the Market. The food and tastes were varied and all very good. Marcia, our tour leader was absolutely fantastic. Her enthusiasm. personality and knowledge made this a great tour. We went to more places and the tour was longer than advertised. I thought this was a big plus. Marcia was not "on the clock" and she really enjoyed what she was doing. This was a wonderful experience.

Fabulous experience and will do it again as the shops are great and so are those who share their stories with you. Great tour - highly recommend.

What a fun experience! Marcia, our guide, gave a great educational experience about The history of this market. The food samples were delicious and filling!

Marcia was great. Very enthusiastic and full of knowledge. The market has a fascinating history and many interesting stalls. Fish throwing is entertaining but I have to ask why. Little tit bits to sample on offer all over the place. Great time. Only negative is the confusion as to the meeting place - experienced by all on the tour.

Fantastic way to spend your first day in Seattle! Our family of 6 all over 20 yrs. spent a fascinating 4 hours walking the market as our wonderful guide told us the history of Seattle and the amazing Pike Place Market. Be prepared to eat a wide assortment of foods. We returned to the Market several times over our 7 day stay in Seattle and thanks to the tour we were able to pinpoint places we wanted to try and/or return to.

My daughter and I took this tour for a deeper experience at Pike Place Public Market. We thoroughly enjoyed the guided tour taking us into 8 different store fronts while sampling their delicious food and/or beverages! Meeting the owners directly was especially enjoyable while appreciating their passion and pride offering their unique delicacies located at the Seattle Public Market. Our favorite stops were the gelato, salmon burger, smoked salmon and clam chowder sampling! Witnessing the fish toss near the mouth of the market was a bonus! The sample portions are small in quantity but our tummies were very full by the end of the tour! Jerry, our guide, gave our group a colorful historical perspective behind the anchor vendors and the Public Market which we appreciated! I would suggest taking this tour early in your trip to Seattle so you can circle back to your favorite stops and explore others that caught your interest on tour.
